to read. i'd say i spent during the u.n. week i spent two hours at a tea that president ahmadinejad held for aumb of boo authors and i emerged from it more confused about where iran is today than i think i was when i went in. i think the iranians would like a cost-free way out and i reported last week on the details of an iranian offer, a nine-point plan in which basically the u.s. lifts all the sanctions and then at the end the iranians suspended the production of the fuel that you could turn into a bomb the fastest. this isn't going anywhere because the u.s. doesn't want to give up its leverage. >> rose: right. >> but what it does tell you is that the sanions m finly be getting the attention of the iranian leadership we don't know whether it's getting to the point that they would actually begin to carve back on the nuclear program and that's going to be the big test. the iranians have basically made a clear they don't want to conduct any negotiations until the end of our presidential elections. >> rose: right. >> and who could blame them? because they wouldn't think that a deal preside
-threatening. yousufzai spoke out on girls' education at a u.n. children's assembly last year. the taliban called her work "an obscenity" in a statement claiming responsibility for the attack. one out of every eight people on earth is going hungry, according to a u.n. report today. that comes to 870 million people, but it's far below the figure of one billion announced in 2009. the u.n. food and agriculture organization blamed flawed methodology and poor data for the earlier number, and it said the number of hungry people has been declining steadily in the past two decades. athens, greece, erupted in angry protests today against the visiting chancellor of germany, angela merkel. germany is the leading contributor to the greek bailout, but at a price that's embittered many greeks. we have a report from james mates of independent television news. . >> reporter: at the airport the welcome was warm. the protocol followed to the letter. but this was no routine visit from the head of one e.u. government to another. angela merkel is hated here. widely blamedded for inflicting a depression on the greek economy wi
directly conflicts the description of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. this was on september 16th, five days after the attack. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted of course by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> that from the obama administration again on september the 16th. yesterday, october the 9th, the state department says there were no protests outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi. today congress is set on to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether or not the administration initially down played the link to terrorism. >>> in pennsylvania, jerry sandusky, the former defensive coordin
of the u.n. with a cartoon of the iranian nuclear threat. that was a couple weeks ago to get their attention and it sure did. now a new report says iran could be close enough to produce weapons-grade uranium to arm nukes. with me stuart holloway, former member of the u.n. security council. thanks for coming on the show. >> thank you. melissa: what do you think of this new report saying they may be able to produce enough uranium within two to four months? it shortens the timeline a lot. >> it sure does and disturbing to say the least but confirms what the intelligence community has said, which says it is not only the amount of uranium that iran needs to produce a weapon but the time in which it would take to convert that. so 25 kilograms are what they're looking for in the two to four months is a close window. now they don't know if they made the decision to convert but to have that capability would be very disturbing for the united states and the international community. melissa: one of the other things to watch on the timeline of course is that they have to create a nuclear
testimony of state department officials. he is doubling down on denial. >> greta: the former u.n. bamboss dor, john bolton is here. >> incompetence, ideology or coverup. but this is looking like the comedy routine of "who's on first"? >> i think vice-president biden really crossed an important line, reinforced today. they have dug a mote around the white house on the one hand and the state department and the intelligence community on the other. basically saying that the buck stopsa the state department, as ed henry asked the spokesman earlier today. if that's the case, one has to ask, what is the national security council staff for, if not to monitor what is going on at the state department to know where the security problems exist? don't forget, ambassadors are the president's personal representatives, obviously, they work for the state department. but the ambassador covers all of our agencies overseas and all presidential appointees. so to say, we didn't know about it is an admission of real failure on the part of the top management of the white house. >> greta: what secretary of state
not be deployed without u.n. approval. then in the mid 1980's, he ran on the basis of cutting most of our major defense programs. in 1991, he voted against desert storm. it's a consistent pattern over time of always being on the wrong side of defense issues. a little tough talk in the midst of a campaign or as part of a presidential debate cannot obscure a record of 30 years of being on the wrong side of defense issues. and they give absolute no ibbed case based on that record of being willing to go forward and aggressively pursue the war on terror with the kind of strategy that will defeat our enemies and will guarantee the united states doesn't get attacked by the likes of al qaeda. >> we'll get back to that topic. tonight we mentioned afghanistan. we believe that osama bin laden is hiding perhaps in a cave somewhere along the afghan-pakistan border. if you get a second term, what is your plan to capture him? and then to neutralize those who have sprong up to replace him? >> when we have -- we've never let up on osama bin laden from day one. we've actual live pursued him. we've captured thous
of what everyone has talked about, what president obama talked-about at the u.n., the cascade of proliferation, the unraveling of the regime. that is what would follow from the saudi opposition of nuclear weapons, because it does not probably stop saudi arabia. there are other countries in the area that will want them as well. preventing that will become a very high priority for united states foreign policy. and by preventing that, i mean preventing the saudis from responding. we do not want to end up there, but think that is where we are the moment it becomes clear that they have nuclear weapons. what we do? one thing we will do, and quite confident is to apply the cold war deterrence model can and try to persuade the saudis that they do not need nuclear weapons if they are the victim of a nuclear attack. i think there's a lot of reason to think that we might not be as persuasive and making that case to the saudi government as we work to the germans and other allies during the cold war. another thing, we will go to the saudis and say, we will keep in place in sanctions regime
, flat out ugliness of process in raddatz' question was in paul ryan's answer on the u.n. based diplomacy in iran. >> when barack obama was elected they had enough material to make one bomb. now they have enough for five. we've had four different sanctions, three from the bush administration, one here, and the only reason we got it is because russia watered it down. >> it is true the u.n. can be maddeningly dysfunctional. it's an accident of history and that russia's objections to any and all u.s. proposals can seem to americans truculant and spiteful. what exactly is the alternative? the answer is violence, war, death and bloodshed which brings us to the announcement yesterday from the nobel prize committee of a somewhat unusual choice. the european union. the announcement occasioned a whole lot of snark state side. not a good sign if the e.u. asks that its nobel prize be paid in some currency you other than the euro. jeffrey goldberg tweeted, next year the nobel committee should consider awarding the peace prize to puppies. dave wooegle, this guy right here, nobel me. the team at fox an
. again, this contradicts directly what was said by the u.n. ambassador, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. and it contradicts essentially what the administration had been saying for five days after we reported that intelligence officials had within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack. this comes ahead of committee hearing tomorrow on capitol hill where a house oversight committee will start calling witnesses. they have uncovered a full list of some 230 security incidents that happened in the year before. on the consulate. and the area around the consulate. in libya. and one of the congressman who just got back from libya talked about that today. and state department response. >> twice in the lead up to this attack on 9/11 compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british ambassador had an assassination attempt. we were moving in 9/11 and now the white house wants to say we had no direct information. no actionable intelligence. are you kidding me? where else in the world was the consulate bombed twice? >> i'm not going in timeline details what we had when and whe
to syria-- has blocked multiple efforts in the u.n. security council to sanction damascus. in washington, state department spokesperson victoria nuland, left little doubt where the u.s. stands. >> we strongly support the government of turkey's decision to inspect the plane, and while we would send you to them for more details on what they found, we'd be concerned by any effort to supply military equipment to the assad regime because it's clearly being used by the regime against their own people. >> warner: all of this, as tensions between turkey and neighboring syria have escalated sharply. ankara has been leading demands for syrian president assad's ouster. last week brought cross-border shelling after a syrian mortar attack into turkish territory. the turks and the syrian army have traded artillery volleys for several days since. for more on what's behind the plane incident, i'm joined by soner cagaptay. he's director of the turkish research program at the washington institute for near east policy, and a columnist for turkey's oldest english-language newspaper, hurriyet daily news. wel
information we have at that time. >> sreenivasan: clinton also defended u.n. ambassador susan rice, who initially said the attack started with a protest against an anti-islamic video. u.s. authorities now believe computer hackers based in iran carried out cyber-attacks on persian gulf oil and gas companies over the summer. the attacks crippled 30,000 computers at major companies in saudi arabia and qatar. and defense secretary leon panetta warned thursday of a possible "cyber pearl harbor". he promised "decisive action" to meet any threat. russia insisted today that a syrian airliner was carrying legal cargo when it was forced to land in turkey this week. foreign minister sergei lavrov said the shipment consisted of russian radar parts, but no weapons. turkish descriptions have ranged from ammunition to missile parts that the syrian government meant to use against rebels. an outbreak of fungal meningitis has now spread to dozen u.s. states. the centers for disease control reported today that 184 cases have been confirmed, as a result of tainted steroid injections. 14 people have died. f
days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going to find is these bits and pieces are going to come out. again i think we're both troubled by some of the things we saw and unfold. >> reporter: the house oversight committee hearing on the benghazi attacks gets underway tomorrow at noon. a lot of people will be watching, martha. martha: there is sort of a drip, drip, drip effect to this story. and some lawmakers are still questioning what the administration itself knew before these attacks. >> reporter: you know congressman jason chaffetz of utah just returned from benghazi. early this morning on fox he pointed out some obvious warning signs that preceded the attack. >> twice in the lead-up to their attack on 9/11, our compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british am

told a different story. we have a special ambassador to the u.n. thank you for joining us. we had venezuela citizens tweeting exit polls showing that the challenger actually won by several percentage points. is there any recourse here? >> there are elections coming up at the govern ship level and really reveal and be a referendum on what i see is a decline in chavez popularity. in terms of recourse it will be very challenging to overturn the election results. you have a highly technical election process. it's clear with chavez controlling the air wave, the election commission and pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into the provinces before the elections that it amounts to what i think would be at least a 5-point differential if this were a truly transparent and free election. patti ann: yeah, fenn there are no irregularities found at the poll as you say, they say chavez used state-controlled media to influence public opinion. he gave away pensions and houses essentially buying votes. is it even in pricing that chavez won by a much smaller margin than in the past? >> it is ver
terrorist attack, they send out our u.n. ambassador to tell everybody, on all major news shows that this was a spoon stainio iospontaneo demonstration bred by a hateful video. you don't have spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. look, iraq, because we didn't leave a residual force behind, al qaeda's back and iranians are exerting their influence. in afghanistan because the president overruled his military advisers time after time we're seeing this terrible afghans in uniform killing americans in uniform. the palestinian/israeli peace process moved forward, not at all, and the iranians continue on their path to nuclear weapons and 30,000 people have been killed in syria and we do nothing. it's really a failed leadership that i think that mitt romney will be able to capitalize on. finally, t"the military times" s a newspaper for the military men and women, they took a poll of the men and women in uniform, guess who won by almost 3:1, mitt romney, those people know about national security. >> senator, we hear time and time again there will have to
